Book signing: Houston's Hermann Park: A Century of Community by Barrie Scardino
Commissioned by Hermann Park Conservancy in honor of Hermann Park's centennial, this richly illustrated book with rare period photographs provides a vivid history of Hermann Park. Author and historian Barrie Scardino Bradley sets Hermann Park in both a local and a national context.
As Bradley shows, Houston's development as a major American city may be traced in the outlines of the park's history. Bradley, who served as executive director of the Houston chapter of the American Institute of Architects, develops the events leading up to the establishment of Hermann Park and then charts how and why the park developed. Using illustrations that include plans, maps and photographs — both historic and recent — Bradley documents the accomplishments of the Hermann Park Conservancy since its founding in 1992.
